Kaiser, docs sue nurses over walkout
San Francisco Business Times

Chuck Idelson, a spokesman for the Oakland-based California Nurses Association , didn’t directly respond to the substance of Kaiser Permanente ’s lawsuit in U.S. District Court. But he told the San Francisco Business Times late Friday that Kaiser allegedly is taking the step as part of plans for an East Coast expansion move, to New York, New Jersey and the Washington, D.C., area (where it already has a regional unit). “Kaiser has dreams of empire,” Idelson said, and wants to fund its expansion on the backs of workers. He said that is CNA’s only statement on the suit.
